Few words about this wine

This wine comes from a single vineyard called "Les Messagelins" with its unique iron rich, red marlstone soil. The wine shows a pale yellow color, clear and clean. On the nose we can sample a bouquet of stone fruits (apple and pear) with some notes of lemon zest.

Why I like this wine

You can sense a vibrant acidity in the mouth that brings up the wine freshness followed by the same fruity character you first perceive on the nose. The wine presents also a touch of oak and mineral complexity that complete the experience in a pleasant and elegant end. This wine is a non-oxidized version of chardonnay.

Frédéric Lornet

The wine story of the Lornet family starts with Eugene, Frederic’s grandfather. He was cooper and winegrower. Eugene’s son, Roger, was one of the first of Jura’s producers to bottle the Arbois wines. Frederic Lornet took over the family tradition producing elegant Jura red and white wines.

The cellar is located in a thirteenth century Cistercian abbey and the vines of the Domaine are planted on sixteen different plots (delimited in the past by the Cistercians monks).
